    I watch this before, and I totally agree. Thats why i am endeavoring to creat or promote an environment that my son can have a purpose with minimal depresssion. Hard work, communication skills etc... I hope i do well.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the first half. I wouldn't say that none of the blame falls on the millennials themselves. I'm 30, and I resisted most of that stupidity.

    same here
    where I disagree is the

    "it's not yo fault" is too much of an excuse for continued fail
    It's not your fault if parents raised you wrong
    It IS your fault once an adult to not make it a personal responsibility to recognize and work on one's flaws that cause major problems .
    Not continue to satiate them with dopamine




    and it's the responsibility of corp America to fix them????:headscratch:
    where their parents failed?
    (or the millennials themselves that continue to fail???)


    he lost me big time on those points

    I agree. A large percent of millennials don't work for corporations, and never will. They can choose to succeed too. It is sad how technology has been used to our detriment. After my teenage years I haven't used social media. It promotes egotism, low self esteem, self centered attitudes, and mostly it's a waste of time. More parents should see this video.

    Every generation complained and did not think very highly of the one that came after it.
    Every generation has different characteristics (bad, good and in between) and parents try to compensate their kids for what they "supposedly" did not get. And in the process create new advantages and deficiencies.

    Somehow, civilization, so far, survived this "decline" and thrived. I think we'll be all right.

    sorta kinda
    History shows all great civilizations rose, peaked and declined and another took it's place to repeat the cycle

    I'd do agree most see the generation(s) after theirs as "less than"
    There could be some truth to that

    I don't think it's because of Elvis, the Beetles or rap
    (or hi-tec devises as he suggests is the "new Elvis" that rots the youth of today)
    But I do see evidence we are in the "decline" side as far as great civilizations go

    You're thinking the US. Decline of empires. And yes I would agree that the US is on the decline.
    Millennial are not limited to the US. They have them in the west as well as in the east.

    Agree

    Every generation seems to look back and recall a better time

    Was pretty rascist and intolerant where I grew up, and there were plenty of lazy and disrespectful kids as well

    Times, technologies and people evolve ... change is good

    With all the tech in our child's lives now a days, I feel like most kids have the attention span of a nat(tiny bug if ya don't know).

    I see a day in the future where everything will be done by service providers. These kids will be able to write computer programs in minutes, but won't be able to change a light bulb! They are going to have to pay for everything, because they know how to do nothing(except computer stuff).

    I also see a day coming(and it's already starting) that young people wont leave the house(or socialize). Really, everything can be shipped right to the front door(tp, soap, food, etc.) and it's only going to get worse.

    20 years from now ALL kids will know how to code, they will all(want to) work some type of programming job and no one will want to be service providers, construction workers, etc.

    I see a very large shortage of people who actually work coming, assuming I live long enough to see it....
